hoped for. msnbc's chris jansing is outside headquarters in boston. it's eerie how quiet it is. there's nothing going on behind you. that's not the way they thought this was going to be the morning after the election. >> to say the least. and you mentioned mitt romney had spent almost seven years for president. it was over in about five minutes. a short of gracious concession speech. but that was preceded, chuck, by 90 of what were thought to be bizarre minutes where the media called for barack obama. and some for mitt romney said they would contest it there. at one point ryan got in his van and returned to the hotel. there was a question even when they said he was coming over here to make remarks whether it would be a concession speech. about an hour and a half after the networks called it, the mitt romney did call the president and then came into this ballroom for what i said was a very brief and very gracious final comment. so after one of the most -- the most expensive presidential race in history and one of the most acrimonious, mitt romney called for unity. >> the nation as you
's in boston. j. mart, if you can hear me amid the hoopla here at the newseum. you're a student at virginia, you've been e-mailing me all night about problems you're detecting in virginia. tell us the problems you see and why and what it means. >> the margins in conservative -- [inaudible] in the suburbs around richmond, chesterfield county is the biggest one, comparable to '08. in 2008 john mccain lost the commonwealth of virginia by seven points. the bottom line, barack obama can do a little bit worse across virginia and still win that state. if he wins the state, there's no path to the presidency for mitt romney. we'll get the western suburbs, look at the outer suburbs of northern virginia, the margins are comparable or a little bit better for romney than they were for mccain four years ago. so unless something big happens in the two big jurisdictions still being counted, virginia beach and fairfax up by washington, d.c., i think that the commonwealth of virginia is going to stay blue and give president obama a second term. >> republicans knew that there was trouble there, or has this al
campaign in boston on tuesday night. joining us on our news line. hi ginger, good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> bill: it was not a happy night there. the word got around pretty close that things were not going romney's way didn't it? >> it was pretty clear early points in the night that he wasn't going to win but there was sort of a group that held out hope in boston. but the crowd started to dwindle, the enthusiasm was gone really early. >> bill: what were some of the signs like virginia didn't immediately go or north carolina didn't immediately or florida or ohio? is that what people were looking for? >> yeah, you were looking for wins in any of those states. and even north carolina which sort of everyone had conceded at that point. they knew that -- the obama camp had conceded. they knew that romney was going to win north carolina. i think they called new hampshire before north carolina which was not a good sign for people hoping for a romney victory. >> bill: what were they saying now the ne
eastern time to concede the race. jan crawford is in boston, where the republican nominee spoke to his supporters. jan, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, charlie. good morning, norah. romney actually waited about an hour to concede after ohio was projected to go for the president. that, of course, being the must-win state. everyone knew at that point the race was basically over, but the campaign wanted to see some of those actual votes come in, just to make sure. and then of course, advisers tell me once they saw colorado go for the president, they knew that was it, so governor romney picked up the phone and called the president. >> this election is over, but our principles endure. i believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide to a resurgent economy and to renewed greatness. >> reporter: a defeated mitt romney was gracious. >> i believe in america. i believe in the people of america. >> reporter: after running for president for 17 months, his campaign came up empty. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the fi
's speech early this morning was a gracious one. we'll take you live to boston. we'll take a look at what went wrong for the romney campaign. >>> many people are crediting the campaign organization as one of the reasons for his re- election win. the political reporter joins us via skype joins us outside of washington, d.c. how did obama's campaign get out the vote efforts really pay off? >> reporter: well, if you break down the redales and start -- details and start -- and start looking at them, it's almost county by county, the president winning most of the same counties in florida and in ohio and then you start then going into the details and you see that the democrats were able to get out of vote again and sometimes mitt romney was not even able to reach the level of what john mccain had gone four years ago. one example in franklin county, the obama people were able to get 15,000 more votes than people while the mccain levels were not reached by romney. down in south florida, miami- dade, home to marco rubio. the romney campaign couldn't come close as the obama squeezed the out 70,000

heard from mitt romney on his campaign charter heading into boston last night. he thought he was going to win too. he said he had no regrets and was proud of his campaign. but as for why this campaign went down in defeat, that adviser tells me that they are pointing to what the obama campaign was predicting, they were going to have a good turnout in the word of the adviser, the obama campaign was right. as for the future of the republican party, i talked to a top conservative leader inside the republican party who said the gop will have to do a better job talking about immigration reform with latinos if they have any hopes of winning a presidential election in the near future. john? >>> presidential race is settled, but we're still looking at key races to determine the final numbers for the balance of power in the united states senate and the house of representatives. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is with us for breaking news in north dakota. >> cnn can project the democratic candidate for senate, heidi heitkamp, in north dakota, has won that seat. she's kept that sea
